The downstairs toilet on the LH
A340-600 is great. I could pee standing up.
But the worst enemy of those who believe toilets should be ergonomic is the airlines.
On a BA
flight in J class seated upstairs in a 744 some genius had designed the baby change table to fold up from a location beside one's knees when seated, which meant that one's friggin* knees were so close together it was almost impossible to use the toilet paper without standing up.
You'd think the world's favourite airline (not) could adopt a successful design, like a folding down baby change table, just one of many examples of stupidity on that carrier's part that has me dreading the next time I have to fly them.
The other think that struck me last time I flew them through LHR
was watching a whole line of people waiting to check in under a giant Club World sign being asked by a cretin whether they 'really meant to be checking in in economy?'. Now if that isn't insulting, and a foolish waste of a wage, I dunno what is. Like he didn't even ask in any language other than english, so the logic of the question totally failed me, like the toilet.
